Exclamation WTF need help

ok i have an 05 suzuki furenza, and bad karma wit the situation basically needs alot of front body work but my main concern is that when i shift into park and turn it off the key wont go into the off position as in takin the key out the ignition. the car will turn off to aux but wont come out unless i disconnect the batt. so i called the dealer and they said it could be three things, the break light switch which i checked. when i hit the breaks the lights come on, solved. Two the switch when the shifter is, took all apart and the switch worked connected to a batt and it worked, solved. Three the replay under the dash. there are a couple of them under there and i dont know witch one it is. does or has anyone ever encountered this issue and is do can you PLZ help me out. ill post pics soon of my suzuki i made a custom CIA today just cuz and looks nice but i need this first.

Thanks

first i just want to ask what type of front end work needs to be done?? if the car has been wrecked then it could be a number of different things that are wrong. let me know more about the work that needs to be done to the front end and i will help u narrow it down. it doesnt sound like a relay problem to me. it sounds like something worse.

In the Park position does the shifter have some free play side-to-side? If you hold the shifter slightly to the left does the key now return to "off"? Broken shifter return spring. There's a new TSB about this concern (I've seen this a number of times). The spring is Suzuki part number 28095-85Z00, and it's less than a dollar if I recall correctly. It would probably take a shop under an hour to replace.

well i found out that it was the spring that went bad the one where the shifter is so I had to jump it to take the key out, as wit that I can just make a lil switch wont bother me none but the next issue is why when i hit the breaks the shifter wont enlock and let me shift I have to push in that little button near the shifter to unlock the shift. we checked the solonoid and it works just wont work on its own for some reason or theres no power or responce comin from the wire somewhere. they said at suzuki that if the break light switch is messed up that could be the problem and he said if i push in the breaks and the break lights dont come on then its the switch but when i hit the breaks the break lights come on so now im at a lost cause wit that. besides that I have a new hood and workin on a bumper now, the altenator went out and i have to replace that. next question is IF the altenator went out and the cars just runnin on batt power will that cause a check engine light and the trans mission to feel like its draggin. I know when i helpd my other friend with her car it was doin the same thing till we replaced the altenator so I wanted to know if this was like the same thing.
Thanks alot for you help guys.

Either the park position switch or the return spring...both are in the shifter assembly.

The only problem I had was with the break light not going off. Even If I was driving and the e-break was all the way down I keep hearing problems like yours though... Idk that I would choose my dealership as the first people to call though. Just with my own experiences they will swindle not saying anything down on Suzuki just some of the business relations in general.

I think dealerships swindling people is really a problem with the individual dealerships, not dealerships or the corperation themselves. We are not trained to screw people out of money, but some dealerships feel that they are in the position to do so. Just like almost any other level of automotive work: Oil change shops, tire shops, independent shops, and everything inbetween, there are good ones and there are bad ones, there are honest ones and there are some that would screw their own mother out of a dollar. The rapport you build with a shop (of any kind) and the way they treat you should be what you use to judge them...not the type of establishment they are.

I wasnt speaking as the Suzuki corp. in general No When we had the recalls those guys were great. Got me what I needed wasted no time and I was out the door behind the wheel again. I was just making a comment and I completely agree erik. Just saying weary. Not judgmental of them. See here we have a place called Lambs Auto. Wanted to charge $600 for a part. Come to find out I could obtain it myself and go get it replaced for a couple hundred less. There have been problems with charging for work without doing it. So we found a mom and pops shop to start looking at everything to make sure that the jobs were completed. Places like Firestone of course are going to take your arms legs and wallets for simple tasks. I take that back if they were simple I would do that myself. But back to my point Suzuki itself has been loyal since I first got this car.
